Skrillex Has Mad Skill-ex 

June 28, Knitting Factory

California-based 20-something Sonny "Skrillex" Moore is relatively new to the world of electronic dance music. But the young DJ has already found a huge following among people for whom steady beats comprise the soundtrack of their lives.

Moore's 2010 EP Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites was released on Mau5trap, DJ Deadmau5 label. It's a coup for any producer of EDM but especially for one with only about five years of experience under his belt.

Electronic music lovers are like oenophiles: every note, sound, slider move, instrument, beat, beatmaker and rhythm is as defining as the oak smell or citrus undertones of a fine wine. They are also as discerning, often only listening to a specific genre. Spin magazine called Moore a "dubstep darling," and while he may be, Skrillex has skillex--the nine-song S&NS exhibits such a mastery of the music that even the most die-hard downtempo, drum-and-bass, progressive listener out there may want to lend an ear.
